Maruti Wagon R User Reviews


Best Car in Maruti

Friends, I like Maruti WagonR very much for its excellent ride both in heavy city traffic roads and highways. I have test driven many cars such as Chevrolet Beat, Skoda Fabia, Chevrolet Spark, Ford Figo, Nissan Micra, Maruti Astar, Maruti Ritz, Hyundai i10 but I like driving WagonR for its excellent engine performance and pick up. Exterior appearance, Interior features, Space and Comfort, Engine performance, Mileage, Ride Quality and Handling of Maruti Wagon R are fantastic. Whatelse we need, everything is perfect for the demands of the consumers.


Hidden problems in Maruti WagonR

Actually, Maruti WagonR is one of the superb model resembling like a soap case. But the tyres in the lower end models are very thin which seems to be bad for wet road driving. The plastic quality used in the interiors are not good and the tyre size is not suited for the vehicle. So, the ride quality of the car is not so satisfactory and overall, it is not a suitable car for a middle class family and better not to choose the vehicle.


Fantastic Car from Maruti

Maruti Wagon R is one of the good looking car which is quite suited for tall persons. The car has stylish and neatly curved structure and its interiors are too too good. It has smooth gear changing option and the engine performance is really appreciable. Overall, it is a good car and I would recommend everybody to go for Maruti Wagon R. It needs to improve some features such as CD system and tachometer in some models but the service is awesome.


Think Thrice Before Purchasing Car

Guys dont waste the money by investing in purchasing the Maruti Wagon R. I dont like the external design of the car any way I bought it. Before purchasing the vehicle, I was very passionate about the car and had done a great research on net and with my friends and other persons. All are very sure about the brand name but even I could not able to be seated comfortably but the rear seat is not like it could be really comfortable. While talking about the interiors, the dash height is not so satisfactory but the engine performance is good and driving handling is smooth. Technically, the Wagon R is fine but other things made me very much irritating.
